Battling Meserve for the lead.

Scott's day at Oxford for the TD Banknorth 250 went much better than the finish order would indicate. The #84 was handling well in the practices and comfortable to drive. A good draw for the outside pole of the fifth heat gave Scott a good start on qualfying the for main. After a battle with the 01 of Wayne Helliwell for a few laps, Scott moved into second behind Ricky Rolfe and transfered right to the main in the 11th spot.

At the green Scott and Travis Benjamin in the #17 started to move to the front. By lap 75 Scott was challenging Stan Meserve in the #2 for the lead and looking real strong. Scott was swapping places with Travis and a charging Kyle Bush when a power steering hose came apart and the day was done for the #84 with a 38th place finish and 86 laps in the record book.
But everyone knew that Scott was a front runner with a good shot at a win.
